    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    So let's see. Cons cried and howled for weeks and now the chemical weapons are being dealt with without 'war mongering'. Obama isn't cooking a steak but calling out to Putin as he bails- "Dudrominov, I sure hope your chute opens!" Russia backs away from confrontation that just yesterday Cons was declaring as the start of WWIII.

    How quickly Cons forget all their blather and spin desperately anyway they can to try and make a peaceful resolution a 'fail'...

    I see bait dangled and Putin leaping out of the water to bite. He damn sure didn't want a fight and found himself in a corner supporting a guy no one likes and with a carrier in operational range Putin's navy isn't in a position to do much.

    Obama, unlike BushII saw a peaceful resolution and took it, where as BushII rebuffed any attempt to resolve the Iraq mess without an INVASION and a chance to show everyone just how big and bad he was...

    ...and that peaceful resolution comes with the cost of taking a backseat to Russia, who is now making demands of the US. All of a sudden, this is now all our fault.

    Say it with me now: We're number 2!

    Perhaps. I'm not exactly sure what the guy wants.

    Right now Russia's credibility on ME diplomacy is at a peak. They are allied with Syria and Iran. Iran wants nukes and now they will have them unopposed. Syria will keep its chem weapons (these international coalitions overseeing such things NEVER work out). The result here is a lot like what we got after we pulled out of Iraq in 1991. The brutal dictator is still running the show and the international community will pretend to hold hold him accountable. The people of Syria that wanted democratic reforms will be destroyed and now NOBODY in the ME that has a lick of sense will look to the US for support if they want government reform.

    It's not really that funny - conspiracy theorists are underwear gnomes. They spelunk the gorges of humanity in search of validation.

    Considering that there are 3 main Syrian CW depots and at least 50 (known) sub-depots, impoundment validation in such a war torn landscape will be virtually impossible.

    It's a seemingly sensible idea in the corridors of diplomacy and politics. In the real world, not so much.

    Backseat to Russia- you mean having Russia be our lap dog and arrange this- so instead of defending Syria Russia is selling them out.... oh yeah... that is a REAL win.

    After weeks of bluff and posturing from the Kremlin Putin couldn't move fast enough to jump on the hook.
